My idea is having a soul society, where you go in as a noob spirit, starting in the slums, as you improve you rank up, if you are a good rank, you can go to the city, later join a house, later a squad, becoming a captain eventually.
So far I've got an ok city, with a couple of missions. The point being each mission scores you points in a certain field, ie str, range, defence
The jobs are optional, and abundant (repeating things like fending off bandits/tricking them/ stealing from them) or collecting goods for shop keeps.
Eventually, when you join a squad, you can pay down your boring knife/sword/ bow (scrub weapons) and get your hands on a zanpukto!
Now, the problem is I need a ton of ideas for difforent skills for shi-kai !
And some way/grid /chart, to allign the skills.
By this I'm open to suggestions.
I was trying to use 4 selection boxes.
1 for type, like att def hadou
1 for skill, like ranged, explosion, shatter
1 for effect, like poison, disorientate, burn, trail, lock on
And 1 for ..Ok Can't find my book.. but it's not a full idea. Ideally, it have 4 home made skills, and depending on how you play, you get difforent types added to the list for you to mess around with.
For example, getsuga would be 1att 2range 3explosion, 4continues/charge
(High in damage, long-range leaves explosions as it travels, and need to charge (more power)
Also senbonzakura would be 1deff 2shield 3split 4lock on
(Its a shield that circles you, and breaks apart to form more, it locks on when in range)
Rukias sword, would be attack range lock on and charge..
You get the picture, i wrote this out and made a trial so sorry I'm writting poorly.
Id love to know what people think of this idea, any new ideas, and story ideas.
The town is working, the talking system is ok. Weapons are a bit Zelda style and obviously incomplete. And a lack of graphics ouside of circles path finding around randomly
The buildings are with layers, higher the layer, the more opacity. Hoping for some upstairs rooms in houses.
I have a few other projects, but if this receives good response, maybe we can make something tidy
